“Get books, sit yourself down anywhere, and go to reading them yourself.”

Abraham Lincoln

“If any man at this day sincerely believes that a proper division of local from federal authority, or any part of the Constitution, forbids the Federal Government to control as to slavery in the federal territories, he is right to say so, and to enforce his position by all truthful evidence and fair argument which he can. But he has no right to mislead others, who have less access to history, and less leisure to study it, into the false belief that "our fathers who framed the Government under which we live" were of the same opinion - thus substituting falsehood and deception for truthful evidence and fair argument.”

Abraham Lincoln

“Tact: the ability to describe others as they see themselves.”

Abraham Lincoln

“I am slow to listen to criminations among friends, and never expose their quarrels on either side…allow bygones to be bygones, and look to the present & future only.”

Abraham Lincoln

“Don't believe everything you read on the Internet.”

Abraham Lincoln

“All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.”

Abraham Lincoln

“The will of God prevails. In great contests each party claims to act in accordance with the will of God. Both *may* be, and one *must* be, wrong. God cannot be *for* and *against* the same thing at the same time. In the present civil war it is quite possible that God's purpose is something different from the purpose of either party - and yet the human instrumentalities, working just as they do, are of the best adaption to effect His purpose. I am almost ready to say that this is probably true - that God wills this contest, and wills that it shall not end yet. By His mere great power, on the minds of the now contestants, He could have either *saved* or *destroyed* the Union without human contest. Yet the contest began, And, having begun He could give the final victory to either side any day. Yet the contest proceeds.”

Abraham Lincoln

“I am naturally anti-slavery. If slavery is not wrong, nothing is wrong.”

Abraham Lincoln

“And in the end it is not the years in your life that count, it's the life in your years.”

Abraham Lincoln

“The way for a young man to rise is to improve himself every way he can, never suspecting that anybody wishes to hinder him. Allow me to assure you that suspicion and jealousy never did help any man in any situation. There may sometimes be ungenerous attempts to keep a young man down; and they will succeed, too, if he allows his mind to be diverted from its true channel to brood over the attempted injury. Cast about and see if this feeling has not injured every person you have ever known to fall into it.”

Abraham Lincoln

“Whatever you are, be a good one.”

Abraham Lincoln

“The best way to predict your future is to create it.”

Abraham Lincoln

“I would just as soon die now, but I haven't done anything yet to be remembered by”

Abraham Lincoln

“I know of nothing so pleasant to the mind, as the discovery of anything which is at once new and valuable--nothing which so lightens and sweetens toil, as the hopeful pursuit of such discovery.”

Abraham Lincoln

“I can see how it might be possible for a man to look down upon the earth and be an atheist, but I cannot conceive how a man could look up into the heavens and say there is no God.”
